Vid looks like you're on a freshly graded road.

Oh, and my snail's pace? I'm just pacing myself.

no, those were about 8-10" and a long distance between. I have other videos of 55 mph in 18" slop, I just need to convince the wife to upload them...

This rig is very well engineered and built. You guys did a good job on it. Riding in it is a whole bunch of fun. I couldn't believe how well it handled some of that terrain. I hope you do well with it.

No amount of pictures or video can show how well this thing works. I was truly shocked, and I know Bill was taking it easy when he took me for a spin....mainly so I wouldn't pee on his new seats.

I can't wait to see what it will do with a little more suspension tuning.

If anyone works for Ford or is a supplier locally, the buggy will be at the PDC car show tomorow in Dearborn with 399 other vehicles. It's usually a good show.

x gabillion. Steve and I discovered later in the week that the front suspension isn't even using the bumpstops. Not even a little. None at all.

Needs a grille, something different, since it's already been a CJ, a Liberty, an FJ-40, and a T-bird...
